Price = 4 = for what it does, MAC's Lightful Essence is rather overpriced. In Japan, it's marketed as a product that has lightening/whitening effects on the skin, but I've been using this for two months and I haven't seen any changes, subtle or otherwise.

Packaging quality = 5 = anything that comes in a pump bottle gets a 5 from me; it's hygenic!

Overall rating = 3 = it's overpriced and doesn't deliver what it claims, but on the bright side, I feel like it "plumps" my skin, i.e. moisturizes it without the heaviness of a moisturizer. I have oily skin, so I try not to layer on so many products; in the morning, I use toner, this essence, and then my Paul & Joe foundation. I also keep using this essence because it has a cooling effect on my skin.

I wouldn't buy this again, though.
